I think the diet looks good, but the overall calories may need to be adjusted if you are losing too much weight too fast, and losing muscle. Any idea of your current caloric requirement? How far is this below maintenance?

Are you currently on any anabolics? Were you on when you lost the 10 lbs? Are you happy with the amount of muscle you retained during that weight loss? I know everyone says diet is key, but I find that I can increase caloric intake and still lose bodyfat when I get on a cycle. I think you are probably as light as you want to be at 180 lbs 5' 10", no?

For me, I can go up one more meal, and still slowly lose fat while gaining muscle, so that's nearly 20%. But, I am old. I am 56 years old. My natural test is likely near the bottom, so boosting test makes a big difference for me.

I think the wise thing to do is be prepared to make changes, but make them in small increments, like 10% after a week or maybe even 2. Take some pictures, use a measuring tape and skin fold calipers to have something concrete to go by, aside from body weight.

All that you need to do, is increase your calories a bit before your workout.
Start with 1 meal, see how you do
Then maybe add a bit, more carbs for a second meal.

Yes I train after 3 meals , that’s just the way i originally had it written. I’m getting sick of fish anyways so I’m gonna swap the 7oz fish meal for 7ox beef and add 1 cup rice and go from there , extra 350 cals. ?

If you're sick of fish, now is a good time to switch it up. 300-350 is a decent amount.
